Funding Opportunities

NCCOS supports research programs that provide the critical information and predictive capabilities required to manage the nation’s coastal resources in an ecosystem context. NCCOS addresses these issues via a stressor-based or regional ecosystem approach. These issues typically require multi-disciplinary research teams and a significant long-term commitment of resources because of their complexity and the effort required to reach a new level of understanding sufficient to support NOS priorities and drive future coastal management decisions.

Applications for funding are submitted through Federal Funding Opportunity notices posted on the website. Notices of specific Announcements of Opportunity posted here on the NCCOS Funding Opportunities page are provided as a courtesy to our research community and in no way replace the official information provided through

Pre-Announcement Information for the Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) Programs

NOAA/NOS/NCCOS/CSCOR is planning to post a competitive announcement in for the Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) Programs. The FFO will provide an opportunity for investigators to propose research projects for ECOHAB in the South Atlantic, Mid-Atlantic, and Gulf of Maine, for MERHAB in the West Coast, Alaska, and Great Lakes, and for PCMHAB in the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean, and Pacific Islands.

This is a new competition and any applications submitted for prior competitions must be revised and resubmitted; they will be treated as new applications.

It is estimated that the FFO will be released at approximately the end of August. Letters of Intent for HAB programs will be due 30 days after publication, and full proposals for all programs will be due approximately 90 days after publication
